If you like to eat beef tartare this is the place to go - handcut, deliciously prepared and served with a smile! Plus a great choice of wines and cool music - we loved Le Bonheur!

We had planned on going to a wine bar on the square near here, but it was closed. The proprietor of that spot directed us to Le Bonheur poursuit son cours. (Note correct name.) It was around the corner a few blocks away on a quiet street. We were the only nonlocals in the place at this hour (maybe 8/9... More

We've been coming to Vaison for years but never stopped for a meal at this restaurant before. We were just about to walk past when I spotted the menu which looked really interesting. As it was very hot we sat outside where there is a little row of tables. The waiter came very promptly and water and drinks quickly followed.... More

This has to be the BEST meal my husband & I have eaten ever in France, (we have visited France for many years) We chose this restaurant after reading the many good reviews and we were not disappointed. The husband and wife who own and run the restaurant are a unique team. Not only do they provide outstanding service but... More

After walking past the square, which was full of very generic restaurants,we stumbled into Le Bonheur. What a great surprise and what a treat. The steak tartare was easily the best I've ever had (and I've had it many times, including a disappointing version a few days later in Cannes). The salad was fresh and dressed to perfection. If Le...

We had a wonderful relaxed afternoon at this chilled restaurant. The waiter was very helpful and spoke excellent English (which is very rare in town). Baked cheese salad to start was exquisite, followed by a Thai king prawn rice noodle salad (outstanding) & a vibrant tomato and serrano ham salad (carefully put together). The desserts were also remarkable; a chocolate... More

Let the owners guide you in your choice of food and wine... their wine cellar is impressive and their ability to choose the right bottle for you even more so!

Kind of cool and funky with a seasonal menu that celebrates local products. Really enjoyable food, excellent service. Short but well thought out wine list.

We found this place on a rainy day out of sheer luck. After a rainy drive up from Avignon we decided to stop for lunch. We avoided the main square and wandered a few streets back and found this place. The food is excellent, very honest and has been a highlight of our trip so far. I had a beautiful... More

First the good thing: the food is not bad at all. And they serve lots of different wines by the glass. At okay prices. So why do they spoil it all with the rudest service ever? The lady of the house sure dislikes her customers - to put it mildly. My Happiness will follow another path! (For non French speakers:... More
